We are starting our six month trip to WA in a week, and I still haven't figured out how to work the money for buying a rig. If I end up buying from a dealer I think I can put it on the Master Card or Visa. But what if I want to get a decent deal from a private party? Anybody have any ideas on money transfers? Looking at around the $AUD 12000 range.

I dont see a problem, they all take Visa & Mastercard for service and other goods. If they can sell you a vehicle, they will take it from a card... Michael

Hey Michael,
Not related to this post but could you send me your email as I would like to ask you about a friend of mine from Moss Vale whom I am sure you would know.
Thanks, Steve

Go to the bank, and get a cash advance. The interest is calculated from day number one.

Gooday,
Think you will find most dealers will only take a small amount on creit card because of the commission they have to pay to the finance company who supports the card, (don't call 'em "BANKS" any more they are only on the side of rivers), also as they now have the power to pass the fees on, as Telstra & several others do, think cash or cleared funds will be the best way to go. Make sure you get clear tile if buying private, there is a 1800 number to "REVS", don't know the words for the acronym but worth the trouble.
Cheers boroma604 .

Dagoboy,
I bought my Pajero on Visa Card and told the Car Dealer that as part of the conditions of sale they didn’t charge the “Merchant Fee” (Card Fee) because it was around 3%, back then it wasn’t law that they had too pass on the merchant fee (The Banks were a little slow on the uptake) now I believe that its been passed as law so the Dealer has no choice to pass on the “Merchant fee” I guess you could ask then to work out the fee and take that amount off the Purchase price!! Ha Ha……

The Money Transfer Option will work the same way as a “Pay Anyone” most banks have this facility on their internet banking all you need to do is get the Sellers BSB No, Bank Account No. and your set you transfer the money from your account to their account and the transaction is done.

Are you talking about purchasing the Vehicle remotely, like not physically touching the vehicle? Then I would look at using a Car Finder/Broker they can help you to find the perfect one.

Just remember that you want to take into consideration the previous owners weather they were smokers or not as this can ruin the car your looking to buy it happened to a mate of mine he found the perfect Cruiser in S.A. through a car finder who said it was great so he spent the money on a Red Eye Special Flight to go check it out and the Previous owner was a smoker, he took one smell of the cruiser and said no thanks….

Well enough from me I hope this helps you and didn’t put you to sleep….

Matt
